Beginning in 2000 NACCS explored and made changes to the leadership structure. Most recently, in 2006 NACCS changed its leadership electing the National Board. In addition NACCS also instituted a new sub group named Research Divisions. Members are encouraged to be involved at the local level in Focos; research related Research Divisions; and in special interest groups, Caucuses.

The NACCS structure is built and based upon the NACCS General Membership (voting members). The election of the National Board happens prior to the Annual Conference. At the conference, the membership elects representatives/chairs for their respective Focos and Caucuses.
